Ponchette block

Last night I finished knitting my ponchette. I blocked it on my guest room bed. And here's a neat tip that worked--I put a small fan nearby and had it blow air on the knitting all night. This morning, the knitting was dry. Hurray!

Cool Hemp Ponchette:
Pattern: Lanaknits Designs
Yarn: 100% Long Fiber Hemp: Allhemp6, DK weight, 3 skeins/270 grams
Color: Marble Green
Needles: 7US
Started: 4/24/06
Finished: 5/5/06 - 12 days!
Pattern and yarn purchased from Kpixie

This ponchette was very fun and fast to knit. I fell in love with the cascading circles created by the yarn-over, knit-2-together combination. Adding the three extra stitches and then binding them off to create the small points was also fun. Returning to stockinette knitting is going to be a challenge after this fun and zippy pattern. I might just have to cast on for that lace scarf that's on my list.

I'm going to stitch the ponchette together now so hopefully I'll be able to model it for you soon!
